Old Mill Jesmond Dene

Building In Jesmond Dene, Tyne And Wear

A ruined watermill dating from back to 1739 in Jesmond Dene.

Nestled in the heart of Jesmond Dene is the Old Mill, one of many mills that bordered the Ouseburn.

A water mill was first recorded here back in 1739 and was know as Mabel's Mill. Fast forward to 1848 it was then known as Heaton Mill.

The building that you see today is thought to date from the mid to late 19th century and is believed to have incorporated remnants of the earlier mill building. The mill is now in partial ruin, but you can still find some of the original machinery inside.

The mill was bought by Lord Armstrong in 1862 and, although it was never used as a mill from the time of its purchase, it was still used as a dwelling house until the 1920s.

Don't forget to check out the beautiful waterfall and bridge too.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue pele tower up a remote hill, a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
